s a child, I patiently waited alongside my second-grade peers for monarch cocoons to give way to our much anticipated butterflies. That same wonder and awe returned as I entered the Geneva Park District’s Peck Farm Butterfly House. With the sun shining, the house’s but-

terflies fluttered about, frequently landing to sun their wings on the colorful array of flowers. The transitions that butterflies go through are continuous throughout their lives – they never stop changing, and we as humans never stop marveling at the creatures.

Children were standing silent, patiently waiting for the touch of the butterfly as their parents pointed and snapped photos of the winged insects. Within the Butterfly House, all ages were united in the experience of taking in the simple nature of the butterfly.

chase and were confronted by an employee. The teen then displayed a long machete and told the employee “do you really want me to go back to the register,” court records said. Shortly afterward, another employee confronted the two and the teen told the second employee he would stab her in the face, according to the records. Batavia police at 5:58 a.m. were dispatched to the store while the theft was in progress. A few hours later, a Geneva patrol officer noticed the vehicle parked in the 300 block of Brittany Court. Police from Batavia, Geneva and St. Charles were able to determine the location of Magnuson and the teen and arrested them. The two also are connected with robberies at the Meijer and Wal-Mart stores in St. Charles on Wednesday morning, according to St. Charles Police Cmdr. Jerry Gatlin.

Sarang did not make mention the St. Charles stores by name, but said Wednesday that she expects additional charges to be filed from other police departments, including St. Charles. The incident still is under investigation, said Lisa Blackwell, St. Charles Police spokeswoman. Blackwell said she had no other information available to release Thursday. Along with the no-contact order with the boy, Magnuson’s bond conditions prohibit her from possessing any firearms or dangerous weapons. She is to stay away from the Wal-Mart employees from the incident and stay at least 150 feet away from all Wal-Mart stores. Sarang also asked that Magnuson have drug and alcohol monitoring, which will be at the discretion of court services. Parkhurst set Magnuson’s next court date for July 18.

ing. “Try to make yourself worthy of [his] trust.” The teen was transported Wednesday to the Kane County Juvenile Justice Center in St. Charles Township. Further information on the teen’s status Thursday could not be released because he is a juvenile. Magnuson, who wore an orange jail uniform in court, remained in custody at the Kane County Jail as of Thursday afternoon. She smiled briefly when she entered the room but looked at Parkhurst with a straight face as he explained the court process and read a synopsis of the case. While at the Batavia WalMart on Wednesday, Magnuson stole a pair of scissors to remove a security tag while the teen removed a 32-inch Vizio flatscreen TV worth less than $300, according to court records.

S T . C H A R L E S T O W NSHIP – A Kane County judge Thursday set bond at $25,000 for a Geneva woman facing charges in connection to an armed robbery early Wednesday at the Batavia Wal-Mart at 801 N. Randall Road. Kayla N. Magnuson, 22, of Geneva, appeared before Judge William Parkhurst at the morning bond call at the Kane County Judicial Center. Parkhurst set the bond amount, with 10 percent needed to apply, over the objection of Assistant State’s Attorney Divya Sarang. Magnuson and a 17-yearold St. Charles boy have been charged with felony counts of robbery and armed robbery along with retail theft, a misdemeanor. The charges are in connection with an armed robbery early Wednesday morning at the Batavia Wal-

Mart, according to court documents. A man who identified himself as Magnuson’s uncle told Parkhurst that he intended to post the $2,500 bail for Magnuson. He did not identify himself by name during the hearing and declined to identify himself or comment after he left the courtKayla N. room. Magnuson If Magnuson’s family would post bail, Magnuson would be released on electronic home monitoring under several conditions. She is not to have any contact with the St. Charles teen, who Parkhurst said is the accused co-defendant in the case. “You are very lucky to have an uncle that’s here to help you,” Parkhurst said to Magnuson during the hear-

COVER STORY

‘A VERY SECURE SYSTEM’ Authorities offer prescription drug disposal programs By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com

T

hose wanting to limit the chances of others getting a hold of their unwanted medications can turn the prescriptions in to the Kane County Sheriff’s Office, where even Sheriff Pat Perez can’t touch them. “We have a very secure system,” Perez said. The sheriff’s office is among other local law enforcement agencies that accept unused prescription drugs so they can be properly disposed. In addition to the environmental benefits – medications can contaminate the water supply if they are flushed or thrown away – handing prescriptions over to the authorities can reduce the risk of them getting abused. “You don’t want that temptation there,” Perez said, noting it is common for heroin addictions to start with prescription medication use. The sheriff’s office – which has offered the program for at least three years, Perez said – did not introduce the program to Kane County. Geneva police said that honor belongs to them, as their department launched its program in May 2010. Geneva Sgt. Brian Maduzia said in an email that Officer Eddie Jackson noticed the elderly and their families often were burdened with an abundance of unused, unwanted and expired prescription drugs. “He was also concerned about young children visiting their grandparents and getting a hold of these prescription drugs,” Maduzia said. “We definitely had a community need for a safe, effective way for disposing of prescription medications.” Creating a drug disposal

program involved extensive research with the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office and collaboration with Delnor

The amount collected for each event is as follows: • 242,000 – Sept. 25, 2010 • 376,593 – April 30, 2011 • 377,086 – Oct. 29, 2011 • 552,161 – April 28, 2012

Source: The Drug Enforcement Administration Black’s Auto Rebuilders, Maduzia said. He said the program has since evolved into a partner-

ship with the Drug Enforcement Administration, which began National Prescription Drug Take-Back events in September 2010. Although the Geneva Police Department originally accepted prescription drugs from anyone, it – along with the St. Charles and Batavia police departments – now restricts the program to its residents. The residency requirement makes the program more manageable, police said. “We were emptying it once or twice a week, and now it’s less frequent,” St. Charles police spokesperson Lisa Blackwell said. The sheriff’s office accepts medications from anyone, Perez said. Evidence technicians empty the collection box at the sheriff’s office and keep the medications in the evidence room until the DEA comes for it, Perez said, noting that happens twice a year. He said the agency destroys the prescriptions in an incinerator. Geneva police collect about 400 pounds of prescription drugs each year – an amount matched by St. Charles police last year. Nearby Campton Hills, meanwhile, gets about 90 pounds of medications on each of the national takeback days – the only time the village accepts those drugs, Campton Hills Police Chief Dan Hoffman said. Hoffman said he has looked into offering the program year-round like the other departments, but it’s too cumbersome for his department. “We don’t have the resources to monitor it,” he said. “Whenever anybody calls, I send them to Kane County.”

The victim followed the suspect, identified as Jamelia A. Crowder, 38, of the 500 block of South Campbell Avenue, Chicago – yelling all the while to get her wallet back, according to reports. The victim followed

In that case, Crowder was accused of stealing a woman’s wallet that contained credit cards, a driver’s license and $100, according to St. Charles police reports and court records. The Kane County Sheriff’s Office’s online records show Crowder is being held in jail on $60,000 bond. The two felony charges each have a penalty of two to five years in prison and fines of up to $25,000. Crowder’s companion, Melvin Enoch, 53, of the 1500 block of North Kedvale Street, Chicago, was charged with possessing five insulin syringes, a bottle cap with heroin residue in it, a shoe string, items considered to be drug paraphernalia for the purpose of injecting heroin, according to the report.

LOCAL BRIEF

Authorities: Woman scammed into money laundering scheme

HorsePower seeking volunteers for program

By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ELBURN – An Elburn woman apparently was scammed into a money laundering scheme after she developed a relationship with someone she connected with on an online dating site, according to a Kane County Sheriff’s report. The man reportedly told her he was going to West Africa to work on an oil rig. After he arrived there, he asked her for money to get his equipment out of customs, and she told him she didn’t have any money to send, the woman told police Monday. He reportedly contacted her again, explaining someone else could help him but would need to deposit money in her account, and she would have to forward him the funds. The woman gave him her account information, and she received a $10,000 deposit a few days later, police reported. Per the man’s request, police reported, the woman sent the money to the Republic of Benin in West Africa in the form of three cashiers checks. Her bank later contacted her, saying she was involved in money laundering, and it was closing her account, police

reported. Lt. Pat Gengler wrote in an email the woman was not charged with anything. “These scams are pretty common, and people who fall prey to them are usually never charged with anything,” he wrote. At the time of the report, the woman hadn’t suffered any financial loss, police said. Police also reported the bank had issued her a check for $2,500 but withheld $1,500 for outstanding charges. While anyone can become a victim, Gengler said, these scams usually prey on the elderly. Those who care for elderly family members should pay attention to the scams and make sure their relatives know the dangers of sharing personal financial or identification information, he said. “The people who commit these things have nothing better to do than try to pull these scams off,” Gengler wrote. “They are pretty good at covering their tracks and making sure it is hard to catch them.” Visit www.fbi.gov/ scams-safety/fraud for information about common fraud schemes and www.kanecountytriad.com for information about programs Kane County TRIAD offers for seniors.

A sign reading “Thank you for 40 years,” sits outside of Orlando’s Pizza at 821 E. State St., Geneva. The 1,927-square-foot restaurant was built in 1965, according to property records. The other parcel used to be a gas station, Don’s Gas for Less. The East State Street TIF, established in 2000, covers 24 acres and includes more than 60,000 square feet of new commercial construction. These include Aldi Supermarket, Munchie P’s, Dairy Queen,

Fox Valley Animal Hospital, CVS Pharmacy and Riganato Old World Grille, according to the city’s website, www.geneva.il.us. The gas station’s tanks and contaminated soil were removed using nearly $479,000 in TIF funds and $50,000 in private investment, documents show, to make the property more attractive to development.

“If ever a pizza parlor can be considered an institution, Orlando’s qualifies.” Kevin Burns Mayor of Geneva

While the property owner and developers may look at that corner’s potential, Ge-

neva’s Eastside Fire Station – kitty-corner from Orlando’s – is now without the convenience of the walking-distance restaurant. “It’s a bummer,” said Lt. Todd Loomis. “It’s definitely not good any time a business closes in town. This was very convenient. Definitely, we are going to miss it. The pizza was absolutely delicious. It tasted homemade.”

GENEVA – For 40 years, Orlando’s Pizza, 821 E. State St., was the go-to eatery on Geneva’s east side, a little place with big taste, according to customers. A sign at the now-shuttered pizza parlor at East State Street and Eastside Drive states, “Thank you for 40 years.” No one was at the restaurant or answered the phone. Bill Johnson, who owned the business for 25 years, did not answer his cellphone and his voice mail was full. “If ever a pizza parlor can be considered an institution, Orlando’s qualifies,” said Mayor Kevin Burns in a text. “It was a destination for dates, post- and pre-dance dinners and family gatherings. A slice – pun intended – of Geneva’s history that will be missed.” Joseph Valente, who owns the property and an adjacent parcel at 823 E. State St., said he could not say for sure why Johnson closed the restaurant. “Who knows?” Valente said. “I guess he got tired of making pizza. But Valente said he is working on a possible deal with developers interested in buying the Orlando’s property and the adjacent parcel, together less than an acre. Valente said because the parcels are small, the area would be suitable for a Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks or a takeout restaurant. Geneva Economic Development Director Ellen Divita said she knew of three strong retailers who looked at the site in the last year but did not come to terms. “So we just keep marketing as part of the TIF [tax increment finance] district. It’s still just talk at this point,” Divita said. A tax increment finance district is a redevelopment tool that defers taxes in increments for public improvements to properties that are so blighted, they are too expensive to improve with private funds alone.

GENEVA – Kane County Board member Mike Donahue hopes an energy-savings measure he installed at his Geneva home will make its way to county buildings. Thursday, Donahue told the Energy and Environmental Committee about his experience with solar panels, which he has used to power his home since May 2012. Pointing to data from the past seven days, Donahue said the 32 panels generate power even on overcast and rainy days. He said he receives alerts when problems – such as ice cover – occur. Donahue said he invested about $24,000 in the system. He expects the system to pay for itself within 7½ years, he said, noting he’s two years into that timeframe. He said it would be a “no brainer” for entities that expect to be around for decades, such as the county, to invest in the technology. Committee Chairman Kurt Kojzarek, R-Gilberts, said the committee is in agreement to

move forward with a solar production feasibility assessment at the Kane County Judicial Center. Board member Phil Lewis, R-St. Charles, also asked that the committee consider an anti-idling policy, which was suggested by a presenter who discussed alternative fuel vehicles. Such a policy would set rules about when county vehicles can and cannot be left idling. Kojzarek said he was in “complete agreement” and already had asked Ken Anderson, the county’s environmental and water resource division director, to discuss the topic with the sheriff and deputy director of transportation.

GENEVA – Pack and Give Back, a food-packing and fundraising event, is set for July 19 at Northern Illinois Food Bank, 273 Dearborn Court, Geneva. Teams of five will compete to pack the most food and raise the most money to help the food bank’s efforts to solve hunger.

County staffing changes best breakfast in st. charles will result in savings ssaturday/sunday aturday/sunFROM day ffrom rom8AM 88am am SUNDAYS By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Ken Anderson, the county’s environmental and water resource division director, had good news Thursday morning for a committee of County Board members: a staff restructuring will result in savings. The savings – which should total $27,913 this year and $27,140 next year – is linked to the hiring of two new employees, he told the Energy and Environmental Committee. The county hired Cecilia Govrik in April as a resource management coordinator for the environmental division. She will be responsible for implementing the Kane Coun-

ty Operational Sustainability Plan, which focuses on protecting the environmental, social and economic aspects of division operations. “As a Kane County resident, I’m invested in seeing the sustainability plan carried out to protect our local resources and make wise use of taxpayer dollars,” she said in a written statement. Govrik replaces Karen Kosky, who accepted a job elsewhere. In May, the county hired Rob Linke as a water resources engineer with the water resource division. He replaces Paul Schuch, who recently retired. A licensed professional engineer and certified floodplain

manager, Linke has expertise in storm water and floodplain management, watershed planning, green infrastructure design and stream and river restoration. He said in a written statement that he is looking forward to serving the public. “The county’s water resources serve as the backbone of our region’s natural environment,” Linke said. “We depend on those resources for the water we drink, for disposal of our wastewater and storm water, as well as recreational opportunities such as paddling and fishing.”

surer’s office employee said Rickert was the only one who could authorize releasing that information. Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon had said because Cunningham’s is a county-wide independently elected office, it has internal controls and can set the terms of agreements without oversight of the county board. Ward was suspended without pay for five days in March for doing campaign work for Cunningham’s primary election, by sending an email to the Illinois State Board of Elections on the county’s server, using his county email

tigations. Before his suspension, Ward was poised to be promoted to a new position in the clerk’s office, that of chief deputy clerk, records show. Cunningham said he had business cards printed up stating Ward’s new position as part of an office reorganization, but he then changed his mind because of the cost. Cunningham won the March 18 GOP primary, defeating county board member Mark Davoust, R-St. Charles. Unless a candidate mounts a write-in campaign, Cunningham will run unopposed for a fourth term. The deadline to file as a write-in candidate for the Nov. 4 general election is Sept. 4, according to the clerk’s website, www.kanecountyelections.org. Cunningham said he since has separated his office from his campaign.

GENEVA – A former deputy clerk at the Kane County Clerk’s Office recently was paid his severance check for $11,298.42, county officials said. Kane County Assistant State’s Attorney Joseph Lulves, chief of the civil division, confirmed that the check, made out to Jeffrey Ward of Geneva, had been sent to Ward’s attorney. The severance represents 12 weeks of pay, according to a seven-page separation agreement with Kane County Clerk Jack Cunningham. Details of the agreement was obtained by the Kane County Chronicle through the Freedom of Information Act. “Ward acknowledges and agrees that the monetary payment he is receiving pursuant to this agreement exceeds any amount of payment or debt that may be due or owing to him [by the] county clerk,” the agreement states.

ANOTHER VIEW

Brazil’s economy needs more than World Cup win BLOOMBERG NEWS Brazil is favored to win this year’s World Cup. Yet the cost of hosting the games, along with some expensive promises made by a president seeking re-election, may turn any athletic triumph into a Pyrrhic victory. Brazil’s economy is sputtering. Seventy-two percent of Brazilians don’t like how things are going in their country – which comes as little surprise after more than a million of them took to the streets last year to protest price hikes, poor services and the billions the government was throwing at arenas and airports. Many of Brazil’s foreign investors are sanguine, however. Brazil ranks seventh in the world for attracting foreign direct investment, according to the McKinsey Global Institute, and only five cities in the world are home to more large foreign subsidiaries than Sao Paulo. Such companies help satisfy the consumer urges of the tens of millions of Brazilians who have been lifted from poverty over the past decade. They’re a magnet for other businesses. And most important, they can be a catalyst for improving Brazil’s labor productivity, which rose by only 1.2 percent from 1990 to 2012, an increase well below that in China (8.4 percent) and India (4.4 percent). With rising debt levels, plateauing demand for the riches that God gave it and a workforce that’s all but tapped out, Brazil must improve productivity if it wants to grow faster. And that will take policies to promote economic competition. The obstacles are en-

THE FIRST AMENDMENT

trenched enough to have earned their own name – the “Brazil cost,” shorthand for everything from the country’s underdeveloped infrastructure to its overdeveloped bureaucracy. Near the top of what makes the world’s seventh largest economy a perennial tail-dragger on competitiveness is a Byzantine tax system: According to the World Bank, compliance with 27 different tax codes can take businesses 2,600 hours a year – the most in the world. Multinationals must also contend with high tariffs and laws that require them to use local components and partners. Such barriers help explain why a Brazilian pays 144 percent more than an American pays for a Toyota Corolla (even one built in Brazil), 329 percent more for a Sony PlayStation 4, and 89 percent more for Nike sneakers. Brazil’s new middle class needs stronger purchasing power. Reality check – it’s an election year. President Dilma Rousseff has already boosted social spending and doubled down on fuel subsidies, and she’s not about to make any new enemies (tax reform may come after the election, whisper her advisers). With the Olympics looming after the World Cup, she’s also got plenty of high-profile infrastructure projects to complete. So enjoy the games. Buy some coveted sticker sets of your favorite World Cup players. And don’t look for any hard choices or far-seeing economic reforms in Brazil before October.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A HEARTFELT THANK YOU To the Editor: Several members of my family attended the Memorial Day Parade in Geneva. Included in our group was my 87-year-old father-in-law, who had traveled from eastern Pennsylvania to attend our daughter’s graduation from Geneva High School. He is a World War II veteran and wore his veteran’s cap with pride.

As he passed our position on the route, Mayor Kevin Burns spotted my father-in-law and broke from the procession to engage him in conversation, which concluded with a sincere and heartfelt thank you from the mayor for his service. My father-in-law is humble about his service, but we could tell that exchange meant something to him. There was no script or

cameras for this moment. It happened, I think, because Mayor Burns looks beyond the politics of the moment and seeks real connection with those he serves. We may lose him to a larger stage some day, but – until then – he has our support as the voice and face of Geneva. Well done, Mayor Burns. David Pfetzer Geneva

Koenen ‘everywhere’ in support of St. Charles East By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com

J

asper Koenen wanted to attend St. Charles North like his older sisters did. But when a boundary change instead routed Koenen to East, there was nothing lukewarm about his commitment to being a Saint. Koenen, the Kane County Chronicle Boys Tennis Player of the Year, became the poster boy for St. Charles East, and not just because of his oncourt dominance. “I think after his four years at East, if he had to choose again, I would hope he would choose East,” said Cooper Macek, one of Koenen’s classmates and close friends. No doubt about it. Koenen, East’s student council president, seemed to be omnipresent at school events and was just as persistent at encouraging others to support their fellow Saints in whatever was happening on campus. Koenen’s passion for all things fleur-de-lis fueled him during a senior year in which he became the school’s alltime winningest tennis player, wrapping up his four-year run with a 114-15 record. “I think stepping on the court for St. Charles East each match and working toward getting the school record for the most match wins really motivated me the most this season,” Koenen said. A Michigan State recruit, Koenen went 31-2 as a senior, winning each of his matches in straight sets until dropping a quarterfinal match at the IHSA state tournament to eventual state champion Edward Grabill of Hinsdale Central. Koenen had beaten Grabill twice outside of high school tennis in the previous seventh months. “I think he really came in as an underdog with nothing to lose, everything to gain,” said Koenen, who was a 3-4 seed in the state tournament. “He used that to his advan-

I was kind of up and down a little, but it was the most competitive match I played since my [back injury] in November. It was tough to see him go on to win the whole thing and know I was so close, but I was very happy for him.” Advancing to the last day of the three-day tournament for the second straight year – Koenen took fourth in the state as a junior – Koenen split a pair of matches on the final day, falling in the consolation semifinals to Lake Forest’s Peter Tarwid. Aside from a handful of elite players deep into the state draw, Koenen’s opponents stood little chance. The sturdily built, 6-foot-5 Koenen wields a vast skill set to maximize his size advantage. “What he can do with his physique is he’s able to absorb and redirect the pace of opponents’ balls and do what he wants with it, and make them play his game,” East coach

Rob Livermore said. Watching Koenen overwhelm the opposition was a treat for Koenen’s teammates, Livermore said. “They love to watch his matches, more than anything else,” Livermore said. “Especially younger guys. … They’re always hoping they can finish their match [early] so they can watch Jasper play just because they’re in awe of the things he can do on the court. They’re so impressed. For them, it’s motivation and inspiring, ‘Wow, a high school kid can play like that.’ ” Koenen became a four-time sectional singles champion while also checking off one of his last remaining goals, winning the Upstate Eight Conference River singles title for the first time. It’s not uncommon for top high school players to forsake high school tennis in favor of private training. Koenen’s love for his school – and his sport – demanded that he do both.

“I told myself freshman year I wanted to play all four years and play for my school, which is something my sisters (Annemijn and Liselot) and I have always done for St. Charles,” Koenen said. “I think it made my time at East all the more special. I played all four years and achieved the things I have. It’s really been overwhelming. I’m very lucky.” Koenen was deeply disappointed after his state quarterfinal loss to Grabill, yet instead of brooding in private, he spent that evening rooting on East’s girls soccer team at a sectional match. Koenen was one of the best athletes roaming the halls at East, but considered each of his peers just as worthy of support. “He just tries to be everywhere,” Macek said. “Even though he’s this great tennis player, he doesn’t let that get in his head. He knows he’s a student here at East, and he likes to support his school.”

KANE COUNTY COUGARS

Division champs unfazed by changes By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Champagne bottles popped and emptied en masse Saturday as the Cougars saluted clinching the Midwest League’s first-half Western Division title. Bubbly in June suits a minor league baseball culture that celebrates “Halfway to Halloween” and “Christmas In July.” Still, shouldn’t someone have offered a “See you in September?” Considering the parent Cubs’ past transaction patterns and the roster moves already in the books, the group that doused one another will have a different makeup than the one that begins the MWL playoffs Sept. 3. The Cougars have slightly less than three months to embrace that reality. Or, in their case, to pretend it doesn’t exist and keep playing ball. “They don’t think about that, really, and I really don’t think about it too much, either, but I know that’s usually how the game is at every level, you know, in the minor leagues,” manager Mark Johnson said. “Injuries happen, the draft happens, there’s always a revolving door at every level. And that’s what makes good teams really good, is the teams, they can adapt. It doesn’t matter whether a new guy comes in. They can stick with what they do and their routines.” As the season’s first half concludes this weekend, the Cougars’ resilience stands out alongside their league-leading ERA – 2.97 entering Thursday – and seventh-ranked team batting average (.256). In the past five weeks, the bullpen has lost top relievers Zack Godley, Nathan Dorris and Justin Amlung to promotion to Advanced-A Daytona. Godley led the league with seven saves at the time. On Wednesday, fellow righty Tyler Bremer passed Godley for the team lead after the Cougars scored four unanswered runs in the nightcap to earn a doubleheader split at Peoria. Bremer, a 27th-round draft choice in 2012, lost his final college start at Baylor, 1-0,

Cougars top Chiefs, win series PEORIA – Danny Lockhart, Shawon Dunston Jr. and Trey Martin had two hits apiece Thursday, helping the Cougars defeat Peoria, 4-1, and earn a series win. The Cougars, a Midwest League-best 45-22, conclude the first half with a three-game series at Beloit this weekend. Kane County still can catch or break the 2001 Midwest League champion Cougars’ mark of 47 wins in the first half. Leadoff hitter Jake Hannemann drove in two runs for the Cougars, who led, 3-0, after five innings. Juan Paniagua pitched six innings of three-hit, one-walk, six-strikeout ball to pick up his third win. James Pugliese struck out the side in the ninth to earn his second save.

Cougars manager Mark Johnson has credited the team’s ability to adapt to a series of roster moves as one reason for its first-half Western Division title. despite pitching nine scoreless innings. He’s pegged as a reliever now, a distinction that, like the pressure, doesn’t faze him. “Your first year in pro ball, you’re just getting your feet wet, you know. They don’t really throw you out in the fire like that,” Bremer said. “So it’s kind of like getting comfortable again. Not so much a shock as just getting the mindset of, ‘Hey, you’re going to come into a game late. Hopefully, it’s close and you can get your kind of pitches with your back up against the wall.’ ” With the exception of those receiving treatment or getting a pregame workout, players usually rest their backs against chairs or the clubhouse couch before games. Last season, in a bid to facilitate more team discussion, Johnson pooled kangaroo court and fine money to bring a ping-pong table into the clubhouse. A year later, there’s little concern in the socialization department. The Cougars went 28-7 at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in the first half and many players

routinely arrive early to seek the next bit of tutelage to absorb. “Everybody’s just working well together,” third baseman Jordan Hankins said. “Our pitching has just been phenomenal, and we’re scoring runs for them. So we’re just doing the little things, I guess, to win ballgames and finding ways to win.” Johnson, a Major League catcher for parts of eight seasons – including five with the White Sox – knows what that’s about. “The best teams I ever played on was a team that there was a revolving door,” he said. “New guys game in, but you had the core guys that kept the same mentality and the same work ethic that kind of rubbed off on the new guys.” Eight Cougars have at least 20 RBIs, including All-Stars Hankins (28) and Will Remillard (25), suggesting a balanced lineup that shouldn’t be prone to much plucking for awhile. The pitching staff could be another story, with All-Star Paul Blackburn (5-2, 2.72) and

fellow righty Tyler Skulina (4-3, 2.70) possible targets for promotion. In 2013, the Cubs elevated All-Star right-hander Pierce Johnson – like Blackburn a supplemental firstround pick – to Daytona after the All-Star break. On Saturday, hours before staff safeguarded players’ lockers from the impending Champagne with plastic wrap, the Cougars welcomed two players making their American debuts. Pitcher Alberto Diaz (Venezuela) and catcher Antonio Valerio (Dominican Republic), both undrafted free agents, played on the Cubs’ affiliates in their respective homelands last season. Leaning against a concourse rail as opposing Cedar Rapids took batting practice, Johnson outlined a simple plan for the newest Cougars. “Yeah, you just get to the park and you’ve got ’em, and we roll with it,” Johnson said. “It’s like any other guy that comes in. Not much to say, and let’s just go play. Then we’ll talk and do what we need to do later on when we need to.”

BLOOMINGTON – Recent Geneva graduate Abby Luchtenburg and St. Charles East product Nicole Rae were on course for a potential matchplay semifinal encounter as the IWGA state women’s golf amateur continued Thursday. Instead, both bowed out against the same foe, as Lexi Harkins of Crystal Lake scored separate 1-up victories against Luchtenburg (quarterfinals) and Rae (semifinals) at Crestwicke Country Club. An Illinois State recruit, Luchtenburg led Harkins, 2-up, through 14 holes before watching her foe take charge. The duo was all square entering No. 18, but Harkins recovered to hit her second shot from a fairway bunker to within 25 feet of the pin. She then sealed the match with a birdie putt. “It was a close round, close match,” Luchtenburg said. “We were both playing pretty well.” Rae, an Iowa senior, opened the day with a 4 & 3 victory against Madelynn Swank of Clarendon Hills in the semifinals before falling to Harkins. Harkins will face Hui Chong Dofflemyer of Belvidere for the championship at 9 a.m. today.

VIEWS Rick Morrissey soon. Bryant might end up being the superstar the franchise hopes he’ll be, but it’s hard to see a whole lot of good coming out of a June call-up or a July call-up or any kind of call-up besides the September kind. Same with Javier Baez and the other big-time prospects in the system, about whom your more “involved’’ Cubs fans know much too much. There is no rush here. The early reports are that Bryant’s swing is big-league ready. His glove? Not so much. He has 13 errors in 57 games at third base. If you’re the Cubs, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t commit to an austerity plan in the name of building a farm system and then rush along young players because you want to put more people inside Wrigley. If you wanted to put peo-

ple in the seats this season, you would have fielded a major-league team at the major-league level. Same with those of you Theo-Epstein-is-god true believers: You can’t defend the approach of the Cubs president of baseball operations and then turn around and ask to see a hurry-up offense that brings youngsters to the majors as soon as possible. The Bryant-to-Chicago calls were already loud, but then came Tuesday, when Pittsburgh called up 22-yearold outfielder Gregory Polanco from Class AAA Indianapolis. The Pirates sold 5,000 extra tickets for his debut, which happened to be against the Cubs, which happened to spur more conversation about Bryant. See what the Pirates are doing, the chatter went. Maybe the Cubs should follow suit, fans said.

Dozens of high school coaches took in the frenzied pace of Marc Trestman’s practices in the Walter Payton Center this week. But only two of them – Mount Carmel coach Frank Lenti and his brother David – walked in with an enduring bond with the local star at work on the field. “It seems like yester day I was just playing for [Lenti],” college quarterback-turned-running back Jordan Lynch said. Did he know his high school coach was coming? “Yep,” Lynch said. “He texted me.” Mount Carmel, St. Christina Elementary School and Mount Greenwood are never far for Lynch. (Lynch’s hotel home in Lake Forest is 45 minutes from his boyhood home.) Additional hopes and dreams also come with close proximity. Lynch’s No. 36 jersey might not be regular attire in the bars that line Western Avenue on the Far Southwest Side yet, but his celebrity is very real. And Lynch feels it. “A little bit more every day,” Lynch said after organized team activities this week. “But I’m kind of a low-key guy. I don’t go out where there’s a bunch of noise or anything like that.” Still, knowing that a city is rooting for him can be overbearing. “I try to forget about it,” Lynch said. Instead, Lynch focuses on his many tasks at hand. His trips home are weekend visits, if that. Minicamp is next week. Then comes training camp, where he no longer will be a longtime fan in attendance but a keenly watched participant. “It hasn’t sunk in yet,” Lynch said. Lynch puts in extra work with running backs coach Skip Peete, and Matt Forte “helps anybody out as much as possible,” Lynch said. He’s listened to his coaches’ calls to improve his pass blocking. The Bears’ offense, however,

is on a different planet than the one Lynch ran at Northern Illinois and made him a Heisman Trophy finalist. Sure, he’s run the ball plenty in his career, but this also isn’t Mount Carmel’s veer option. “We ran a lot of power [formations and plays] in college,” Lynch said. “Some of these different zone [blocking] schemes we got going on now, I’m just trying to pick up and watch film and try to carry it over to the field. It’s reading the right guy at the right time.” Making the Bears’ 53-man roster isn’t just an uphill battle for Lynch. It’s more like scaling the Willis Tower. He knows that the Bears have a full stable of running backs, including fourth-round pick Ka’Deem Carey. Lynch has to impress during special-teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis’ diverse drills, which can feature volleyballs and medicine balls. Lynch has done about everything in them. “I’ve never played special teams before. It’s different,” Lynch said. “But I’m open-minded. I’m willing to do anything, and I’m having fun in there. It’s one of the three phases of the game, and it’s very important.” Lynch has the right attitude, plus a sense of humility. Any regrets giving up quarterback now after OTAs and a rookie minicamp? “Wasn’t hard at all,” he said. “No hard feelings.” All of it makes him even easier to root for. He already has made fans out of general manager Phil Emery and coach Marc Trestman. “I come out early and throw [the ball] around and try to live back those glory days,” Lynch joked. “No, I’m a running back now, and I couldn’t be any happier.” He will be if he makes the team. “One thing I do know, that no matter what happens at the end, I know that the city has my back,” Lynch said. “They want the best for me, and they want me to be a Chicago Bear. I’m going to play my heart out to do that.”

The impulse is natural. Some of you Cubs fans want to see Kris Bryant in the big leagues right now. You’d like a better reason to keep living than Mr. Potato Head Keychain Day on June 22 at Wrigley Field. I get it. The current blip of Cubs’ success aside, this has been a dreadful season that figures to stay dreadful. Bryant, meanwhile, is tearing it up at Class AA Tennessee. His 22 home runs, 55 runs batted in and .357 average were leading the Southern League by a wide margin heading into Wednesday’s action. What, you’d like to know, is the holdup? It’s this: Do you really want to deprive Bryant of the knowledge, experience and pharmaceutical knowhow of Manny Ramirez at Class AAA Iowa? Hey, just kidding! But there is no good reason to buy the kid a plane ticket to Chicago. I recommend a long, cold shower for those of you who want the Cubs to bring him to the big leagues any time

Bears corner back Kelvin Hayden run a route during an organized team activity Wednesday in Lake Forest.

By NATE ATKINS natkins@chicagofootball.com LAKE FOREST – The gray clouds hanging Wednesday above Walter Payton Center were silent but powerful. They pushed Bears practice underneath the dome and cornerback Kelvin Hayden into a backpedal on the patch of turf where football first felt possible again. In November, three months after he suffered a season-ending hamstring tear in training camp, Hayden came to try to start over. Hayden started running striders. They felt easy, and his trainers were impressed, so he pushed harder. He moved faster. It all felt right. He remembers standing at the 40-yard-line when he knew he had a chance. “You hear so many things about the injury,” he said. “Guys don’t come back 100 percent. Guys do come back even better. I just didn’t know where I was going to fall into place yet. My first day out here running, it was just like, ‘Man, I’ve come a long way.’ ” Hayden has come a long way, but he knows he can’t lose sight of how much farther he has to go. The Bears rewarded his progress in February with a contract, but it is set to expire after this season. They brought him back, but first-round pick Kyle Fuller has received reps with the first-team nickel defense, like Hayden did before his injury. “This is a business,” he said, shrugging. “But I know what I can do.”

Before last season, one in which he spent Bears games lying still in bed, Hayden was a defender who could make some noise. In 2012, his first season with the Bears after coming over from the Falcons, Hayden tied for the NFL lead in fumble recoveries. The Bears rewarded him with another one-year deal. Step by step, the Hubbard High School graduate was starting to make a name in his hometown at the highest level of football. Then came one play in August at Soldier Field. Hayden tore his hamstring to the point where that it separated from the bone. For six weeks, he couldn’t move his legs. “It was kind of my motivation as well,” Hayden said. “Is this going to be the break of you, or are you going to accept the challenge and better yourself?” His return back started with diet. He visited a nutritionist after his surgery and had a plan for his every calorie. His steps to standing and walking came slow and under careful supervision. Eventually, tired of being the forgotten Bear, Hayden asked his trainers if he could try running, and they came to this field. On Wednesday, Hayden said his body felt to be at 100 percent and that his feet were actually quicker than before the injury. They might need to be if he wants to circle back to a starting nickel position in what is now a very crowded secondary.

tice, as that group is a beneficiary of the Bears’ hire of martial arts expert Joe Kim, the team’s assistant strength/ skill development coach. “It’s night and day with my hands right now, just over the course of two months,” Young said. “[Kim] is a great guy, definitely helping with the craft. The whole intention is to better your success.” Like the rest of the 2014 defense, the 6-foot-4, 251-pound Young’s exact role in this defense is not entirely known, although he figures to be the No. 3 defensive end, playing often in nickel situations and rotating with the rest of the line. “I’m the type of guy, it doesn’t matter what scheme you put me in, I’m going to make the best of my opportunities,” he said. “Before I got to Detroit a couple years ago, I wasn’t used to getting off read and react so fast, but I was able to adapt and overcome and make a living for myself doing it. Same thing applies here. A new beginning, adapt and overcome and the rest of it will take care of itself.”

Indoor OTA takes Hayden back to start

LAKE FOREST – For a few weeks, Willie Young was “Free Agency Prize No. 2” for the Bears, behind fellow defensive end Lamarr Houston. With Jared Allen and some rookies added to the mix, along with some key re-signings, Young may be easy to forget when discussing the new-look Bears defense. The former Lion is expected to be a key factor in the pass rush, coming to the Bears after his breakout season, when he had 47 tackles, three sacks and five passes defensed while starting 15 games. Young has one key motto he relies on. “Adapt and overcome is the key to success right now,” he said. “Just getting used to a new scheme, the environment, the city, the fans and everything that people might not pay attention to, but it plays a big factor in being successful and the start of a new beginning.” Part of the fun for Young thus far has been working with veterans Allen and Jer-

emiah Ratliff. “I remember playing video games [as] Ratliff when I was in high school. It’s kind of crazy,” Young said. Allen, the big-ticket get in free agency, has shown Young a thing or two as well about rushing the passer. “He’s like a coach sometimes because he has so much to offer,” Young said. “I find myself afterwards writing Willie Young a lot of it down so I can retain it a little better.” Joining an impressive defensive line group shouldn’t be unfamiliar territory for Young coming from the group in Detroit. He said he learned a lot from Kyle Vanden Bosch about his attitude and his motor. “Effort says a lot. Demeanor, your body language, it all goes a long way,” he said. Young and other defensive linemen worked on what appeared to be some hand-tohand combat off to the side at the end of Wednesday’s prac-

‘Glories of Summer’ Garden Walk to take place June 21 KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE

GENEVA – More than 40 BMO Harris employees from locations across the Chicago area volunteered at Marklund’s Geneva location for BMO Volunteer Day on June 4. Marklund is a nonprofit organization that serves individuals with developmental disabilities and offers residential, educational, recreational and therapeutic services. BMO Harris employee Juan Allende, who works at the bank on the east side of Geneva, contacted Marklund’s volunteer manager, Cathy Nikrandt, about bringing employees to volunteer at Marklund. The volunteers were split up into two groups, one of which came in the morning and one in the afternoon. Each group played baseball, bowled, and made arts and crafts with clients and helped haul and spread mulch around the 25acre campus. “It was quite the flurry

neighbors@kcchronicle.com ST. CHARLES – The “Glories of Summer” Garden Walk and Boutique, sponsored by the Pottawatomie Garden Club, will take place on Saturday, June 21. Participants can start the walk at any time between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. The starting point is 47 Aintree Road, St. Charles. The walk will feature six gardens, varying from a quaint cottage garden to an estate garden nestled in the woods. Participants also can shop at a boutique while sipping lemonade or munching on a cookie. The walk is held biannually to help raise scholarship funds for college students studying horticulture or environmental studies, states a press release about the event. One of the gardens that will be displayed is owned by Cynthia and Wendell Jelm. After living eight years in the Sonoran Desert, the Jelms fell in love with the green lushness of the Midwest, states the release, even if their yard started out as mostly buckthorn and overgrown vegetation. The Jelms eradicated the buckthorn and planted trees, shrubs and perennials. The yard now features a raised urn, an armillary, sever-

Organized in 1928, the Pottawatomie Garden Club has 118 members and usually meets at 11:30 a.m. the fourth Monday of every month in the lower level of PNC Bank, 2600 E. Main St., St. Charles. Visitors are welcome. For more information about the club, visit www.pottagardenclub.org.

al benches, art made by a friend, two tri-color beeches, a mature Katsura tree and numerous redbuds. “We characterize our garden as formal with very soft edges,” said Cynthia Jelm in the release. “Most planting beds are curved rather than linear, which lends to the informal feel.” Amid their garden, the Jelms enjoy laying in the hammock, sipping iced tea in the shade of the screened porch and entertaining on the bluestone patio, cooled by a three-tier fountain, according to the release. Tickets for the walk are $15 a person or 10 for $100, and can be purchased at www.pottagardenclub.org, or on the day of the walk for $18 each. For more information, call 630-584-2181.

of activity,” Dawn Lassiter-Brueske, Marklund’s director of marketing and communications, wrote in an email. Additional support came from Eagle Concrete of Batavia, which loaned several wheelbarrows to Marklund for the project. During BMO Volunteer Day, thousands of BMO employees volunteered at nearly 250 charitable organizations in communities across North America. They signed up for an organization based on their personal interest and location. Those who volunteered at Marklund work at banks and corporate operations centers in Geneva, Batavia, Naperville, Lisle, Lockport and Chicago. “We are so appreciative to all the men and women who selected Marklund as their charitable organization to support on BMO Harris’ Volunteer Day,” Nikrandt wrote in an email. “I saw tons of smiles, lots of laughter, and they are all looking forward to a return visit!”

Thirty years ago Chrysler began the minivan craze. To commemorate the event in 2014, the company has created the 30th Anniversary Edition of the Town and Country minivan. It shares attributes of this year’s upper trim levels ($34,465 Touring-L, $41,995 Limited) of the minivan, but has a little extra. There is exterior badging on each of the front fenders, and the leather bucket seats have accents. In the tested $36,165 anniversary edition, those accents were suede inserts between the side bolsters for lap, back and headrests. Stitching was white on black and tight. Major features the 30th shares with the Limited model are the power open and close side windows on the rear sliding doors, a comprehensive sound system, a roof rack that stores the cross rails, heated and foldable exterior mirrors, quad halogen headlamps in front and, below them, fog lamps, an auxiliary 115-volt outlet and a third row that not only stores into a cavity by power but also can position itself to face backward for those tailgate occasions. Chrysler was the first to introduce a vehicle called the minivan 30 years ago and it was called the Dodge Caravan or its nameplate twin, the Plymouth Voyager. Plymouth was put to rest as a Chrysler division in 2001. Dodge is still around and selling the Grand Caravan. Chrysler has worked hard to maintain leadership in design and sale of this family-oriented hauler of people and cargo. Domestic competition came and went from Ford Motor Co. and General Motors. Who remembers the Ford Windstar, Chevrolet Venture or Pontiac Montana? Who remembers Pontiac, for that matter. Today’s prime Chrysler Group minivan competitors are automotive companies based in Japan. They are

BEHIND THE WHEEL Jerry Kuyper Honda (Odyssey), Toyota (Sienna) and Nissan (Quest). Chrysler remains the bellwether of minivans, whether it is the company’s Dodge Grand Caravan or its namesake Town & Country. Chrysler also has kept up with the times. If a competitor came out with power sliding rear doors, it followed. The same with open and close windows on the rear sliding doors. If faddish tailgate seats were introduced by someone else, lo and behold they became a common sight in succeeding years on Chrysler minivan products. In 2004, Stow ‘N Go was introduced and the second of the three rows of seats could be stowed to create a flat load floor. It was a huge hit and still is. In 2005, both second- and third-row seats were designed to “disappear” to form a flat load floor. That

is the way it stands today, which means there are a possible 144 cubic feet of flat floor storage space behind the front bucket seats. The tested 30th anniversary model was loaded and had power folding third row, power rear vent windows, dual screen and DVD entertainment system for second- and third-row viewing (overhead 9-inch screens for both rows), first- and second-row heated seats, a 6.5-inch touch screen and voice command, a navigation system with Uconnect (maps and audio directions for turn-by-turn guidance), a 506-watt, nine-speaker sound system with redundant audio controls on a heated leather and wood steering wheel and memory settings for power seats and exterior heated mirrors, radio stations (AM, FM, satellite bands) and gas and brake pedals. It included pushbutton start. Prices start at $30,765 for a Touring model and climb to $32,195 for an S, $34,465 for a Touring L, $36,165 for a 30th

Anniversary and $41,295 for the Limited. All models are powered by a 3.6-liter, 283-horsepower, 24-valve V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Chrysler publicists claim it has “best in class (minivan)” horsepower. The engine can haul seven humans in three rows of seats as well as tow a 3,500-pound trailer. Overhead is a set of roof rails that can safely carry 150 pounds. The crossbars, when not in use, fold down into the side rails. Fuel economy usually is determined by driving habits, weather and road conditions, and weight of cargo and occupants on board. During the test week, the 30th edition model averaged 20 miles per gallon of gasoline. Unleaded regular fuel is recommended for the 20-gallon tank. The Environmental Protection Agency has this minivan as averaging 25 mpg on highways, 17 mpg in the city and 20 mpg in combined usage. The third row folds into a well, manually on some mod-

els but by power on the tested 30th Edition. If this third row is upright, there are 33 cubic feet of storage space for groceries or smaller items. With the third row stored in the well and the second row seats upright, cargo space expands to 83 cubic feet. This is lots of room for a family of four to sit in the first two rows and store baggage, bicycles and other vacation items in the rear load floor. Wth the two rear rows stored in their wells, cargo volume is 144 cubic feet. The sides of this van are relatively straight to make storage of clumsy items easier. A 4-footby-8-foot sheet of plywood fits in nicely, for example. A refrigerator would, too. Chrysler has not succumbed to the aerodynamic curvature look for this minivan. Safety features of the Limited include blind spot and cross path detection, a rear park assist system, rain sensitive windshield wipers (turn on automatically to wipe clean even if splashed with water by a passing or oncoming vehicle), rear back-up camera, stability control, tire pressure monitoring system, keyless entry, airbags in front, front sides and overhead for three rows, headrests for all seven seat belt positions and a knee airbag bolster for the driver. This is a comfortable minivan with adequate leg room in all three rows. Obviously, the most leg room is in front but the second row also can comfortably accommodate six-footers. The third row is confining but easy to get to as the second-row buckets flip up and out of the way via a lever. Warranty coverage is three years or 36,000 miles and five years or 100,000 miles on the powertrain and 24-hour roadside assistance. The country’s favorite minivan remains, after 30 years, a Chrysler Group product, whether it is the Town & Country or the Dodge Grand Caravan.

“How to Train Your Dragon 2” is a 3-D adventure that soars.

‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’: A 3-D adventure that sure soars By STEPHANIE MERRY The Washington Post There is an unbearably adorable moment at the start of any 3-D children’s movie when the first frames hit the screen and the little ones in the audience let out a collective “woooooow” as they reach up to touch the images coming at them. This is, for better or worse, the highlight of some 3-D fare. But in “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” that moment is really just an auspicious beginning for a riveting, moving and beautifully animated film. It’s understandable if you approach this sequel with some resignation. You’ll take the kids to see it because it’s the only option, and the fact that writer-director Dean DeBlois already has plans for a third and possibly fourth installment isn’t necessarily heartening – another franchise proving the law of diminishing returns, you might mutter. But the follow-up to the 2010 blockbuster, based on books by Cressida Cowell about a dragon rider and his beloved pet, shows sequel-makers how to do it right. The movie begins five years after the last one ended. The Celtic island of Berk has become a safe haven and breeding ground for dragons; there’s even a basketball-like sport involving dragon riders using sheep to score points. (PETA may not entirely approve of this particular scene, animated or not.)

But while the whole island watches the tourney, self-appointed cartographer Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) and his pet night fury, Toothless – batlike with Zooey Deschanel-size eyes – are exploring far-flung destinations. Both are still dealing with injuries suffered in the first movie – Hiccup has a metal prosthesis – but that doesn’t slow them down. On one of these adventures, the beanpole of a young man stumbles upon an island made of spiky ice that’s home to some unsavory characters. They’re dragon hunters led by Eret (Kit Harington), and they spend their days rounding up fire-breathers for a mysterious overlord named Drago, who clearly has sinister intentions. There’s hope for taking on Drago, though. Hiccup joins forces with a masked dragon rider whose identity won’t be revealed here, except to say that she’s voiced by Cate Blanchett and has a real dream job: She’s the zookeeper of a massive dragon sanctuary. “How to Train Your Dragon 2” is brimming with action while remaining mercifully straightforward. The undoing of many a sequel lies in its insistence on introducing multiple enemies to up the ante. There’s none of that here. Meanwhile, the movie manages to tackle themes of growing up and finding independence; coming to terms with one’s heritage; forgiveness; and how to properly care for a pet. Anyone with a cat, dog, ferret or guinea pig will probably melt

when Toothless jumps on Hiccup and doles out some big sloppy kisses. The movie is also funny. During most conversational scenes, you might notice dragons in the background doing silly things. And one running joke involves the boorish Ruffnut (Kristen Wiig) as she pines over Eret, her eyes going googly in slow-mo as she says, “Me likey.” The animation is splendid, whether it’s showing the acrobatics of dragon riders or a swirl of flying animals of all shapes, sizes and colors doing laps around the sanctuary. But it’s not all pristine. The movie shows, believably, the grime of living in this fantastical rough-and-tumble world. Nearly all the characters are dirty, maimed or both. There are a few moments toward the movie’s climax when things slow down just enough to make the little ones restless. (The novelty of 3-D wears off quickly, regardless of age.) But before you know it, the movie picks up the pace again to deliver a solid finale. This may be the first and last time anyone says this, but if “How to Train Your Dragon 2” is this good, why stop at 3 and 4?

• “How to Train Your Dragon 2” received three-and-a-half stars out of four. It is rated PG and contains adventure, action and some mild rude humor. The film runs 102 minutes.


ADVICE

Dear Abby: I’m a married father with a son 19 months old, and a baby girl on the way. While I couldn’t be more excited about my daughter’s impending arrival, I’m unsure about whether there is a right time to stop doing things like changing a diaper or seeing my daughter unclothed because she’s a girl and I’m not. I come from a conservative family, but because this is a new experience for me, I’m not sure how to go about it. I know this dynamic changes when these roles are occupied by a mother and her son, and that a little boy is probably older by the time the transition occurs. I don’t want to end up in a position where my wife or daughter regrets my involvement in some aspects of my daughter’s life. Any thoughts? – Expectant Dad In New York Dear Expectant Dad: Fathers have become far more involved

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips in child-rearing in recent years than they were in generations past, and it’s a wonderful thing. You should not be worried that changing your daughter’s diapers or giving her a bath will scar her emotionally. In fact, the opposite is true. Discuss this with your wife and your daughter’s pediatrician, and I’m sure they will allay your fears. As to when you should stop seeing your daughter unclothed, you have years before that may become necessary. Dear Abby: I have been working as a desk clerk at a motel in Montana for several years. With travel season here, I was hoping you could help your readers who find

themselves on the road to avoid sleepless nights and headaches. Several times a year many of the accommodations on the interstate can be fully booked due to weather or local events, and travelers are sometimes forced to drive several hundred miles to find a room for the night. You can help your readers by reminding them that they should start checking on motel occupancy early in the day, or even the day before, if they know where they would like to stop for the night. That way, situations like this can be avoided. – On The Road Again Dear On The Road: Thank you for the suggestion. Many of my readers take road trips during the summer months, and I hope they’ll remember your letter before they head for the highways. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Treat peripheral artery disease with lifestyle changes Dear Doctor K: I have PAD. It sounds like coronary artery disease of the legs. Is the treatment similar too? Dear Reader: You’re right: It’s the same disease – atherosclerosis – in different arteries. In atherosclerosis, cholesterol-filled growths, called plaques, grow inside the artery. They block the flow of blood through blood vessels. In coronary artery disease (CAD), atherosclerosis blocks blood flow to the heart. In peripheral artery disease (PAD), plaque builds up in the arteries of the legs and feet, restricting blood flow to those areas. (I’ve put an illustration showing normal and restricted blood flow in the legs on my website, AskDoctorK.com.) I spoke to my colleague Dr. Marc Bonaca, a cardiologist at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He cautioned that in addition to narrowing blood vessels, atherosclerosis increases the risk of blood clots. For example, a blood clot or a piece of a cholesterol-filled plaque can split off from an artery (such as the body’s largest artery, the aorta). Then it travels in the bloodstream to an artery in the leg. If it gets wedged into a part of the leg artery that is narrowed by atherosclerosis, suddenly the

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff blood supply to the leg can stop. That’s a medical emergency. A blood clot that lodges in the leg can kill off tissue and possibly require amputation. What’s more, narrowed leg arteries are often a sign of atherosclerosis throughout the body. That means you are at increased risk of heart attack or stroke. Treatment starts with lifestyle changes: • Adopt a heart-healthy diet. • Quit smoking. • Take medicines to control high blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes. You should also exercise regularly. Movement improves circulation in the legs. The more you exercise your legs, the greater the blood supply they need. That gradually causes your leg arteries to widen and provide more blood to the legs. As your increased blood supply develops, the same exercise that may have caused leg pain in the past often no longer does. Regular exercise is key to easing symptoms and regaining mobility.

Before you start any exercise program, check with your doctor. The proper program for you requires knowledge of how severe the atherosclerosis is in your legs. A program that works for many people is to start with a halfhour walk several times a week. Over time, you should be able to walk farther and longer without discomfort. Your doctor may prescribe new anti-platelet medications, which can help prevent blood clots in the legs. But sometimes severely narrowed arteries cause extreme pain or threaten the health of your leg or foot. In this case, you may need an angioplasty and stent placement procedure to restore blood flow. The procedure is similar to that done in CAD patients. The doctor will thread a catheter through a blood vessel and into the blocked leg artery. He or she will briefly inflate a small balloon to open the narrowed artery, leaving behind a wire mesh stent to keep the artery open.

Teen wants to remain virgin until marriage Dr. Wallace: I’m 17 and have quite a few girlfriends, and I’m active in school activities. Many of my close friends talk about sexual encounters with their boyfriends. All I do is listen because I can’t join in the conversation because I’ve never been sexually involved with a guy. My friends know this and they tease me about being a virgin. They keep saying, “You don’t know what you are missing.” I’ve been dating a guy for a while, and there are times that he is sexually “frisky,” but I keep him under control. I’m not asking you if I should remain a virgin because it’s what I choose, not what you say, and I know what you would say. If I had asked you, I’m sure you would have told me not to have sex. But what I really want you to do is tell me all the reasons why a girl should not lose her virginity before she gets married. I really want to hear what you have to say. – Nameless, San Diego, Calif. Dear Nameless: Many times your peers can give much better responses than I. Please read the following letter. The message is loud and clear: Dr. Wallace: I’ve been reading your column for quite some time, but I never, ever, dreamed that I would be writing to you. Actually, I’m addressing my letter to all the teenage girls who read your column. I hope I can spare them the misery I went through concerning sex. When I was 16, all

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace of my close girlfriends were sexually active with their boyfriends. Me? I was the lone virgin. Soon they were encouraging me to have sex so I could share in the interesting “group discussions.” I thought I was ready and in love with Richard, so one night I said yes. Well, I found out that Richard didn’t really love me and soon he was calling me only when he wanted sex. Not only that, he soon was telling his friends that I was an easy mark and I guess that I was. I had sex with many of his friends. I honestly believed that each guy really liked me and that having sex was a way of showing true affection. How wrong I was! Girls, I plead with you not to get sexually active because you want to know what sex is all about or you feel you are missing out on something special. Believe me, you are not. The time will come when you are truly in love and mature enough to enter into a relationship. Hopefully, it will be after you say, “I do,” to your husband. – Nameless, Albuquerque, N.M. • Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers.

PUZZLES CROSSWORD

SUDOKU

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

If he errs, take advantage

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Jef Mallett, the “Frazz” cartoonist, said, “Writing well means never having to say, ‘I guess you had to be there.’” When the defenders play perfectly, declarer is sometimes unable to make his contract. On other deals, though, a defender will fail to find the killing play. Then declarer needs to take full benefit. In this deal, West cashes three club tricks against four hearts. He then shifts to a diamond. How should South continue? A four-heart opening bid usually indicates an eight-card suit. However, South decided to tell a small white lie because he was nonvulnerable and the opponents were vulnerable. West wondered if his side could do well, but he had too few points to act at the four-level. North and East had easy passes. When West had to guess which suit to lead at trick four, he decided that South would be more likely to pre-empt when very short in the other major. Hence his diamond lead. (As you can see, a spade switch would have been lethal.) Now let’s look at South’s predicament. He needs to take three pointed-suit tricks to go with his seven trump winners. Should he finesse in spades or in diamonds? Either is a pure guess. But he can slightly improve his chances. He should win with dummy’s diamond ace, ruff a diamond in his hand, cash the heart ace, play a heart to dummy’s nine and ruff another diamond. Here, the king comes tumbling down. So, South can draw trumps and claim. But if the diamond king does not appear, declarer can run his trumps, planning to fall back on the spade finesse.
